No timetable yet for Joe Mauer’s return from concussion

2 Comments

Joe Mauer met with the local media this morning to discuss his recovery from last week’s concussion and revealed that he continues to experience symptoms that include sensitivity to light and sound.

Mauer also said that he’s improving and has no plans to shut things down for the season, but as of now there’s no timetable yet for his return. His goal is “to get back as soon as I can” because “it is not any fun watching.”

As for the possibility of a position switch whenever he does return from the brain injury–which is a topic I wrote about at length yesterday–Mauer said there hasn’t been any discussion with the Twins yet.

Report: Momentum in talks between Mariners, Jon Jay

MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand reports that there is some momentum in talks between the Mariners and free agent outfielder Jon Jay.

Jay, 32, hit .296/.374/.375 in 433 plate appearances with the Cubs last season, which is adequate. He’s heralded more for his defense and his ability to play all three outfield spots.

The Mariners are losing center fielder Jarrod Dyson to free agency and likely don’t want to rely on Guillermo Heredia next season, hence the interest in Jay. The free agent class for center fielders is otherwise relatively weak.
